Candidates with funding from an external source are welcome to apply and will be selected according to the same criteria and procedures. They can do so by applying for an externally funded fellowship by the 25 March 2018 deadline.
An externally funded Max Weber Fellow should have a scholarship from a recognised National or International Research Funding Council or Charity (you can find examples on the Academic Careers Observatory website)
that covers living and research costs equivalent to 15.000 euro for 12 months (1.250 euro per month). This requirement may only be waived partially or completely in very special circumstances.
The applications (CV, Career Statement, Research Proposal and proof of funding, all in PDF format) should be sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two confidential letters of reference (also in PDF) should be sent directly by the referees to the same email address.
Applications for externally funded fellowships are considered on a first-come basis for as long as there is capacity in the Max Weber Programme.
